Much like audiobooks, I’ve found that you can learn a significant amount of skills and knowledge simply from listening to podcasts on a daily basis.
What’s even better, is many of them are between 12-30 minutes per episode. One of my favorite productivity hacks is to utilize podcasts as my background noise while doing mindless tasks, driving and chores etc.
For instance, while cleaning my apartment or doing laundry, I’ll turn on a podcast episode or two. Instead of simply folding laundry or cleaning with you and your own thoughts, you can take advantage of this window of opportunity to learn.
Another great time to listen to podcasts are in your car, on your commute to work, the gym, the store, etc. How many times have you flicked on the radio and mindlessly listened to the same radio station play the same set of songs over and over again? A 60 minute round trip commute means you are wasting around 300 hours per year that you could use for learning!
Getting ahead in business and in life, is all about finding opportunities to develop yourself where others wouldn’t and podcasts are a great tool to do so.
